With more than 50 local bands performing all around Station North and Mount Vernon this weekend, Scapescape is one of Baltimore's premier events to better understand the hype surrounding its diverse arts and music scenes. (It's also a bit intimidating. A friend of Midnight Sun, Seth, created a handy Google document to keep track of all the sets scheduled for Labor Day weekend.) I don't mean to single out a particular artist or band when there are so many worthy acts performing, so just know that Scapescape is an awesome event and we're lucky to have it. With that said, tonight could be particularly special because Jenn Wasner, the singer/guitarist of Wye Oak and her solo project Flock of Dimes, will perform two sets at the Charles Street Parking Lot (1712 N. Charles St.)

Reading the commentary on Wye Oak's last album, "The Knot," and the new one, "Civilian," you might think there's little difference between the two. Adjectives like lush, evocative and brooding are alternatively used to describe them. But Jenn Wasner, the duo's vocalist and guitarist, says the new album is different in several respects, and especially in one: It's just better. With "The Knot," she and multi-instrumentalist Andy Stack overplayed the benefits of brand-new label representation, she says.
